Gift or Prison

Gift or Prison?
High in the hills lies
A lonely mountain. In that
Mountain a bereft cave be.
It signs its song “Come and
Find yourself! Be at one with
The world!” Solitude it
shouts as its offering! Solitude
and Sanctuary. Alas, be ye
Warned for it is a double-
edged sword. There is darkness,
misery, and blood-crying pain aplenty
in this cave. Solitude is a
gift to be used wisely for
it is also a prison. High
in the hills awaits the
Gift of pain and prison
of Solitude

Bridge of Victory

The Bridge of Victory

As I cross the bridge to
escape the darkness that
entraps me in a land that
I loathe, the bridge creeks
and moans its protest.
With tears sweeping down
my face and blood-stained
hands I inch ever closer
to the light and victory.
Pain, depression, and anxiety
want to trap me in this
land of darkness. I want to
surrender to the darkness,
but lo the light is ever
so close I can’t give up
my chance of victory. The
land of darkness tries
to twist the bridge
and make me tumble, but
I hold on for the I feel
the light of hope getting
ever closer! I will cross
this bridge of despair and it
will become my bridge of victory!
